Questions arose about the exam content and cost for the ASCP PA

There is a committee working on this (with members from ASCP, AAPA, other
organizations). They expect to publish in the Spring of 2005.

I'll keep an eye on the ASCP BOR webpage, and let the histonet community
know when this information is available.

As for the cost of the PA exam - that has not been established either. But
from the cost of the other tests:
- phlebotomists - $90
- technicians - $125
- technologists - $145
- specialists - $185
- diplomate (manager/supervisor) - $250

Notice, it relates to the salary - those who make more money, pay a higher
application fee.

I don't know where the $450 figure, mentioned in one email,  is coming from.
There is nothing on the ASCP BOR webpage about the PA application fee. And
that mentioned figure just seems way out of line from the other fees already
established. So let's just wait until the fee is published, OK?
